The symbol of Podgorica and also the greatest river flowing through the Capital. Its deep riverbed, large rocks and icy temperatures are just some of the main characteristics of this mountain river. On its way through the Capital, Moraca also carved out many caves. It is 113 kilometres long, and it runs from north to south, flowing into the Skadar Lake.

If you stay long in Podgorica, you will likely cross this river. It is clean running and looks like a nice place to swim. If you go down to the old Bridge, you can walk on the gravel bars.

The drive along this canyon is very scenic. Stop at one of the pull-outs so that you can get good photos.

Its a beautiful river weaving through Podgorica city, where people do sun bathing on the beach and canoeing, swimming etc. The deep gorge outside the city is worth visiting. Its really beautiful to take a walk by the river side inside the city

In august just a little stream, not the beautiful river it can be in other times of year. Don't expect much of it in august.

A great place to chill on a hot summer day. The Moraca is accessible for a quick swim at multiple spots in and around Podgorica. Downstream of the Capital the water can get a tad murky.

There are a lot of bridges, from which you can make beautiful photos of Moraca. It's also good to swim there in a hot day (even in clothes).

We were on a business trip and I didn't even think about bringing my swimsuit wih me although it was summer! I strongly recommend doing the otherwise. You can spare sometime in the morning and enjoy the clean and quiet water of Moraca river.
